I am currently a postdoctoral faculty fellow at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. I graduated from Wellesley College with a B.A degree in Mathematics in 2014 and received my PhD from Rutgers University in 2019 under the direction of Jeff Kahn.

My generic research interests are in Combinatorics and Graph Theory. To see some research I have done in the past see my research section.


My interests are primarily in probabilistic and extremal combinatorics. Below are links to a few of my recent papers. For a complete list of publications please see my CV below.


I am currently teaching Math 208: Multivariable Calculus. My office hours are Mondays from 1:30-2:30, Wednesdays from 11:20-12:20, and Thursdays from 4-5.

For a complete list of the classes I have taught and TA'd please see my CV below.

Since Spring 2020 I have begun implementing mastery/specifications based grading into my courses. For the last two semesters the exam structure for my Elementary Analysis classes were mastery-based. In addition, last semester both of my classes involved final projects using specifications grading. Below I have a few samples of my Elementary Analysis materials. The syllabus outlines the framework for the course including descriptions of all the assignment types. In the exam topics document you can find the 14 topics that are included on the exams as well as how the total exam score is computed. I have also included my first midterm from this Fall. Traditionally, I would give in-class closed notes exams. However, due to the pandemic these exams are proctored via Zoom and are open our class notes and textbooks. Finally, you will find a copy of the final project for my Elementary Analysis course which is graded via a specifications-based grading framework. If you would like to see any more of my materials please feel free to email me.
